Gradestar was born from personal experiences that Paul and Dmitriy shared. Motivation was hard for them to find in high school and it took going to college for them to find their passion for education. They became driven to create a system that will help future generations of students to find their motivation early, build positive learning habits, and have the best chance to succeed in their goals.

Paul leads product development and ensures that the activities of the product team are consistent with the short and long term visions of the company. Dmitriy heads business development, combining the skills of sales, marketing, growth hacking and social engineering to grow the user base and secure partnerships for Gradestar.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I "pay" my kids to do their homework?

We are using habitual extrinsic motivation to help students to learn to set and achieve goals. We are also helping students learn to earn things through education and hard work. Since you can set completely custom rewards, you never have to offer a monetary prize. The app is also completely FREE!

Who supplies the rewards?

Gradestar offers some free rewards to our users. However, the primary provider of rewards will be the parent. We wanted to give families the ability to use rewards that are comfortable for them and do not necessarily have to be monetary. There are plenty of great rewards that are free or low cost! Gradestar will continue to expand our reward offerings as the product grows.

Is this going to take a lot of additional time?

While it will certainly require some time, the answer is no. We have designed this system to be quick, and easy to use for both parents and students. Gradestar can be effectively managed spending just a few minutes once a day on the system.
